INTRODUCTION: Upon request Division 42 provides mentors to ABPP Board certification candidates as well as those interested in applying for certification. Mentors will provide guidance for either the regular or senior options as defined by the ABPP Board. The fact that mentoring is available does not suggest that all applicants need or should engage in a mentoring relationship in order to obtain the Clinical ABPP. Nevertheless, mentoring is available to any Division 42 member interested in obtaining ABPP certification and may be particularly useful for those with special concerns, questions, or undue anxieties. There is no fee to the mentee nor is there payment to the mentor for services provided. The mentoring relationship is NOT intended to provide psychotherapy or clinical supervision. As such, this does not constitute a legal relationship to which professional duties apply and thus it is not bound by the constraints of confidentiality or privilege. GOALS: Mentorship has several goals:
- To provide information to potential candidates that will help them begin the certification process as defined by the American Board of Professional Psychology Clinical Examination Manual.
- To provide information that will guide candidates through the ABPP certification process.
- To help alleviate unnecessary anxiety and concern about the certification process, especially the oral examination.
- To help the candidate ensure that educational background, professional statement, and practice are consistent with each other, or unusual variations are accounted for.
